Because every picture tells a story

…because every picture tells a story…

If you are a close acquaintance of mine, you know that I am very passionate about paper crafting.  But I am more passionate about scrapbooking.  I love creating projects to preserve my memories:  memories of my children, my stamping world, and memories with my love.   At our recent stamping event, I offered the opportunity for attendees to purchase my urban underground project life album and coordinating pages.  Below you will find sneak peeks of the album.  My full detailed album and instructions is available HERE (for those who have already purchased the class).  If you missed your opportunity at my stamping event and would like to purchase this class, email me.  I would gladly mail the products to you and give you access to my password code for additional instructions and images. I am adding a few bonus pages for you to reproduce.   Extra ideas is always fun!  I couldn’t limit my choices in photos so I kept going and created a full album.  

This album is versatile for any occasion.  I specifically created mine to showcase my trip to Jamaica with Chris.  In just a couple of hours, you will have a full album completed.  I thing the longest part for you will be printing and selecting your photos :)! This album is easy to make.  Products needed to create this project are listed in detail below.

What a great weekend

Marlayne Hardy and I had a lovely time, hosting our Third Creative Escape Retreat this past weekend.  It's already over and our guests are already excited for the next one.  Here are a few highlights from this fabulous weekend. Today I will be posting about Friday Night!  This event started off with a bang!! Stampers arrived early to get in line to check in.  First treat was a bag of goodies and attached was a tag that I made using the Holiday stocking die #124098 in early espresso card stock.

I also Love the DEAR SANTA stamp set from the Holiday mini #123832(w) #123834(c) That is where I got the To:  From: to stamp on the tag.

Marlayne used my digital studio to design the seating assignment.  She did such a wonderful job, I always keep mine as a souvenir!

My Advent Holiday calendar class took place on Friday!  They worked really hard but left with a great piece of art!

Then it was time for treats, Stampin'up! treats and Yummy edible treats.  Marlayne crafted the first stampinup! goodies.

It's been a great productive week.  The more I create, more ideas keep flowing.  I love it.  Our Creative Escape retreat is in exactly two weeks.  I have accomplished lots and still have more to do.  I can't wait to share with you after the retreat.  If you aren't attending this one, I hope you can just us next time.

I'm loving the cherry cobbler embossing powder, another must on your wish list to create all those Holiday projects.

Creative Escape Sneak Peek Class 2

Let the countdown begin.  In 16 days, Marlayne and I are hosting our 3rd Creative Escape Retreat.  We host in Spring and Fall.  I get especially excited in the Fall because I get to make Holiday projects for our guests.  I am honored to host 2 classes at the retreat.  The first one was my Fall Wow scrapbook which you can view HERE and now you get a sneak peek of the second class. 

I have always wanted to make an Advent calendar and didn't know where to start.  This year I am amazed that Stampin up! came up with products in the Holiday Mini to make one.  The Stamp set 25 & Counting or in french J-25 and the new Peekaboo Frame Bigz Die are the perfect and easy way to create one.  I could not pass up this opportunity:)  I was going to make it on a canvas so my guests could make one at a reasonable price.  But then Stampin up! came up with great products on the clearance rack, which included the Chunky Frame.  It's been one of my favorite products and I was sad when stampin up retired the frame.  So now that it's back for limited quantities and at a cheap price, I jumped on the occasion.  And suddenly I thought to myself, I will use the chunky frame to make my advent calendar.

And voila! the outcome:

I loved how easy it was to create the opening frames, the peekaboo Frame Bigz L die was perfect for that.  And now until the end of October, Stampin up has offered the Big Shot for FREE or 125$ of FREE product, when you join my family of demonstrators in October.  Learn how to get this sweet deal HERE

The chunky frames are great to work with because you can add any designer paper to decorate the frame.  It's simple you just cut your paper and glue it to the frame.   I used Frostwood Lodge Designer Paper.


I am truly grateful of this beauty and will display it every year during the Holidays.  I especially love Day 25, which is our family picture and wishes Happy Holidays.


You can view or purchase the Chunky Frame on my clearance rack by clicking HERE and selecting clearance rack on the left.  This item has limited quantities and you might want to get one asap.

If you are attending our Creative Escape Retreat then this is a class you don't want to miss, email me.

Creative Escape Sneak Peek Class 1

In less than one month, we will be hosting our Fall Creative Escape Retreat.  I am so excited to share with you one of my classes for our Retreat.  Here is a Sneak Peek.  It's a Wow Album.  Not because of the outside but because of the inside.  I'm not completely done but will share a little today, since my facebook buddies Tammy and Jo-Ann wanted to see it.  If you are interested in attending our retreat, we have 20 open spots.  Our retreat is sold out for guests who are spending the 2 nights but Marlayne and I have opened 20 extra spots for non-sleeping guests.  Email me if you are interested.

I am also doing the same album but with the Christmas theme, so guests who attend the retreat will have 2 options to choose from.  Fall or Holidays, it will be a difficult choice!

Here is the inside:  I still need to add my pictures and my embellishment to make it Kim's Style!

If you are attending our retreat, you will get complete details of this class via email. Have a great evening, I'm off to finish my album:)

Highlights from our Creative Escape Weekend

This past weekend Marlayne Hardy and I hosted our 2nd Creative Escape Weekend!  I really enjoyed organizing this event, the "creative juices" were flowing at the RiverRock Inn in Rockland!  It was a bitter sweet weekend as Stampin up!  was hosting a half day regional in Montreal, 1 hour away from home!  We had already booked our weekend of fun.  So some team members attended the Regional and others our weekend event.  In all, the weekend was wonderful, the friendships, the smiles, and the creativity was in the ballroom. 

On Friday, everyone was greeted with a cute bag with matching tag.(I need to find a pic, it was so cute) Marlayne made personal table setting and a matching welcome sign with My Digital Studio.  The first night started for some guests with a canvas class, others were already stamping away.  Then we spoiled them with treats, Spring time cupcakes with a splash of butterfly die!  Oh did I have fun making these with my wonderful helper Lysanne!

Then I made the second treat for them, cute cupcake boxes.  Oh Shelli had a challenge on her blog about cupcakes for the month of March and I couldn't spoil the beans then.  But now that our retreat is over, I can show you pics.  These cupcakes had special treats inside.  Oh and here is a pick of me acting silly:) And swapping was a Must!  You can also check out our creative table, we got to pic a few winners, it was so hard to choose.

Yummy food, an evening of entertainment, team work, the competition was running at a high level!

Wait there is more, but I will save it for another day:)  I had lots of fun and am going to cherish the time and the stories shared with all the ladies who attended.  Posting about our creative escape weekend makes me anxious for our Fall retreat:)
